Life just keeps getting more complicated for Cedar McLeod. As the recently crowned queen of Tír na nÓg, she’s trying to understand her magical new kingdom, even as she misses her life back on Earth. It doesn’t help that a dear friend has just betrayed her—a betrayal that almost cost Cedar and her family their lives. And things aren’t easy at home, either, as Cedar’s seven-year-old daughter, Eden, lost and lonely in Tír na nÓg despite her special powers, has become painfully distant.

Cedar vows to do whatever it takes to protect her family once and for all, and starts rounding up those who plotted against her. But then a new disaster breaks out: a mysterious sickness is plaguing the Unseen, Ireland’s magical creatures, including those Cedar knows and loves. With enemies still on the loose and not knowing whom she can trust, Cedar must race against time to reverse an ancient curse, in a journey that will take her from Tír na nÓg to Earth…and beyond.

Brimming with page-turning adventure, Among the Unseen—the exciting conclusion to Jodi McIsaac’s Thin Veil trilogy—weaves an enchanting, captivating spell.

    …the Tuatha De Danann or Sidhe, the ‘Gentry’, the ‘Good People’, and the ‘People of Peace’ are described as a race of invisible divine beings eternally young and unfading. They inhabit fairy palaces, enjoy rare feasts and love-making, and have their own music and minstrelsy. They are essentially majestic in their nature…Mythologically they are gods of light and good, able to control natural phenomena so as to make harvests come forth abundantly or not at all. — W. Y. Evans-Wentz; The Faerie Faith in Celtic Countries, 1911 (quoted by Michael Tsarion)Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,For I would ride with you upon the wind,Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,And dance upon the mountains like a flame. ― W.B. Yeats, The Land of Heart's DesireTír na nÓg. Ancestral home to the Sidhe, a land of tremendous beauty, bounty and growth. At least, until one monstrous member of the Gentry goes mad for power, destroying the lands and it’s people, annihilating the very thing he means to possess. In the words of R.A. Salvatore, “A king is a man strong of character and conviction who leads by example and truly cares for the suffering of his people, not a brute who rules simply because he is the strongest.”Among the Unseen is the third and final volume in Jodi McIsaac's "The Thin Veil" Series. The series is billed as ‘contemporary fantasy’ and McIsaac does a marvelous job of blending not only fantasy, but also concepts and ideals that are reflected in today’s modern world. War and the destruction of beauty. Whole countries laid to waste, ravished, and left destitute and uncultivated, unable to support life.Through the first two books in the series, Cedar McLeod, her daughter Eden, and a small group of Sidhe have fought to regain the lands of Tír na nÓg. The lands are finally regained, with all in their proper place. But things are far from safe, as Cedar is betrayed by one she considered family. Now in her proper place as queen, Cedar must help restore her new country, while still missing her family, friends and life back on Earth. And the problems don’t stop coming, as disease spreads, and Eden is less safe than Cedar had thought.Among the Unseen is a beautifully crafted book, as were the others in the series. Filled with well-crafted and well-researched fantasy lore, McIsaac weaves modern life through a story filled with light and darkness, pain and love in equal measure.This series is highly recommended for any lover of contemporary fantasy – especially if you are a purist who is educated in mythology. I loved the whole series.I received this book from the publisher in return for a realistic review. All thoughts are my own.

    Started incredibly slowly. At first it looked like our heroine was being really, really, stupid. Turned out just to be just a way of getting started and had noting to do with the narrative. The ramp up into the true story was gradual, with the real meat in the last quarter of the book. Only then did we see the expected style of the author.

    The third novel makes a very satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. The mythical worlds are consistent and well imagined, and the characters, considering the plot, credibly realised. Good fun from start to finish - I read it in a few hours and look forward to reading more by this author.

    If you like tales of the old folk or grew up reading them these books are for you. Fantastic storytelling with tales of old interwoven. Have thoroughly enjoyed all three books was a fantastic retreat from reality.

    This series is great if you want to be transformed to another place, but cannot make the commitment of a longer read. I have throughly enjoyed the series and look forward to more.
